  • Chinese people beware!

  • Foreign Spies and Hostile Forces are out there

  • And only the Party can protect you

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I’m Chris Chappell.

  • It’s almost time to celebrate the 100 year  anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party.  

  • And you know what that means! It’s time to  crack down on sinister, hostile foreign forces.

  • You see, there’s a problem with today’s youth  in China. They don’t love the Communist Party  

  • enough. In fact, some even are enamoured with  the West, and its false promises of freedom.

  • That’s why at the end of last year,  

  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping startednew campaign to boost youth patriotism.

  • And in the lead up to the CCP’s 100-year  anniversary, people are being asked to  

  • monitor each other and whether theyre  making harmful comments on history.

  • Which is basically anything  that’s not the Party line.

  • And now, China is implementing  new counter espionage regulations.

  • These regulations target what the Communist  Party calls foreign spies and hostile forces. And  

  • anyone who might associate with  them. Well this sounds fun.

  • State-run Xinhua interviewed a senior official at  the Ministry of State Security. He said, “Overseas  

  • espionage and intelligence agencies and hostile  forces have intensified infiltration into China.”

  • And theyrestealing secrets in  various ways and in more fields,  

  • which poses a serious threat to China's  national security and interests.”

  • Oh, I see what’s happening here.  

  • This is that thing where the Chinese Communist  Party criticizeshostile foreign forces”  

  • for things that the Communist Party  is actually doing to other countries.

  • But it’s not like these are  vague, overarching regulations.  

  • Theyre very limited in scope. The  regulations only apply toagencies,  

  • groups, enterprises and institutions  and other social organizations”.

  • So....every possible organization then.

  • Is your Beijing stand-up comedy club being  infiltrated by hostile foreign forces?

  • No, seriously, because Beijing is monitoring  comedy shows for prohibited content.

  • Prohibited content like jokes.

  • Anyway, the Ministry of State  Security says theseagencies, groups,  

  • enterprises and institutions and other  social organizationswill be responsible  

  • forarranging their working staff to sign  letters of commitment before taking up posts,  

  • reporting their activities related to national  security, giving education to personnel ahead of  

  • their departures abroad, and interviewing  personnel after their return to China.”

  • Great! Everyone gets a debriefing  if theyve talked to foreigners.  

  • And it kind of sounds like that might  include universities and private businesses.

  • Also, the way it’s set up sounds  like if one person gets in trouble,  

  • the entire organization gets in trouble.  

  • So youll want to be as overbearing as possible  in how you implement these new regulations.

  • According to a Chinese national security expert  interviewed by state-run Global Times, “Cases of  

  • Chinese people working in various industries who  were wooed by money or intimidated to engage in  

  • espionage activities and became pawns of  foreign spy intelligence agencies are numerous.”

  • Yeah, that’s exactly what Chinese  intelligence agencies do to Americans.

  • Anyway, this is part of a broader push  to warn Chinese people about the dangers  

  • of foreign spies. Global Times recently published  

  • this helpful graph to help educate the  masses about the risk of foreigners.

  • They may target University students

  • or young active internet users

  • using money, friendship, or beauty.

  • That’s right young active  internet users. Beware my beauty.

  • Malcolm Davis , of the Australian Strategic  Policy Institute, says “[Beijing] is wanting  

  • to bring commercial companies, universitiesmedia and think tanks even more under government  

  • control to monitor and report the activities  of Western entities operating in China,  

  • so this makes it more challenging for Western  companies to do business than it already is.”

  • Even more challenging? Here’s an idea:  

  • MAYBE WESTERN COMPANIES SHOULD  STOP DOING BUSINESS IN CHINA!

  • Crazy, I know.

  • Obviously, it’s very vague what the Communist  Party means when it talks about spying.  

  • The Global Times gives an example of a  20 year old Chinese journalism student  

  • who worked for “a mainstream  Western media outlet”.

  • The studentengaged with more than 20 hostile  foreign groups and more than a dozen officials  

  • of a Western country”, providing evidence  “that could be used to stigmatize China”.

  • So it sounds like this student  journalist was...doing journalism.  

  • Journalism that damaged China’s national  security. He was arrested in 2019.

  • If you ask me, the Party doesn’t  want Chinese people interacting  

  • with Westerners and maybe hearing things  that might make them question the Party.

  • Which is why the main goal of these regulations  is not actually to stop foreign spiesbut  

  • to give the CCP even more access  to spy on Chinese citizens.

  • Listen to this, “The regulation also gives  national security organs access to buildings,  

  • internal materials, electronical media kits”—yes,  

  • electronical—“facilities, or computers and  information systems of the companies involved.”

  • Of course that also applies  to Western companies in China.  

  • So in a way, the CCP is bringing together  Chinese people and Western companies by  

  • giving the shared experience...of being  spied on by Chinese authorities. Beautiful.

  • And now it’s time to answer a question frommember of the China Uncensored 50 Cent Army,  

  • fans who support us on the  crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Nick S asks, “Is Hong Kong still worth visiting?  

  • It's a shame I only found out in the  last year or so how awesome this city is.  

  • Once international travel opens up I'd like  to see it before it's changed completely…”

  • Now that’s a great question. I love Hong Kong. One  of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. You know,  

  • despite it being the only  place I’ve been teargassed.

  • Beautiful city, great people, great food and  culture. However, the National Security Law  

  • is an absolute beast. Technically it applies to  everyone on the planet. So if youve been involved  

  • in criticizing the Chinese Communist Party  anywhere in the world, and you go to Hong Kong,  

  • you could get in trouble with authoritiesNow they said that would never happen.

  • But if you watch China  Uncensored on a regular basis,  

  • you know not to trust anything  the Chinese Communist Party says.

  • The sad fact is that Hong Kong is now pretty much  

  • just another Chinese city. Currently the  US State Department warns Americans should,  

  • Reconsider travel to the PRC’s Hong Kong  Special Administrative Region (SAR) due to  

  • both arbitrary enforcement of local laws  and COVID-19-related travel restrictions.”

  • And they specifically cite the dangers of the  National Security Law that I just talked about

  • So Nick, it’s still possible to go to Hong KongBut it’s a lot more risky than it used to be.  

  • You should basically treat it like  youre going to mainland China.

  • Thanks for your question Nick, and thanks for  joining the China Uncensored 50 cent army!

  • And a big thank you to everyone who supports China  Uncensored on Patreon. We could not do this show  

  • without you. So thank you for joining us in the  fight to expose the Chinese Communist Party to  

  • the world. If youre interested in joininghead over to Patreon.com/ChinaUncensored.

  • Once again I’m Chris Chappell, see you next time.

Chinese people beware!
